Published

on

The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) has reportedly gunned down one of its top Commanders, Abu Sadiq popularly known as Burbur.

Burbur was the Deputy Militant Chief in Charge of Sambisa Forest and Timbuktu Triangle, and former Aide-de-Camp to late Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Naija News learned that the ISWAP Operation Commander was killed over his alleged betrayal and purported plans to surrender to the Nigerian military.

The slain commander was said to have been imprisoned since April before he was finally killed on Monday in Galta village, close to Madagali in Adamawa State.

Sadiq was charged and reportedly found guilty of a treasonable felony by a purported court presided over by an ISWAP Militant Cheif, Ya-Shaik, according to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad.

In May 2021, he was appointed as one of the top ISWAP commanders when he paid allegiance to the terrorist group, because of his deep knowledge of the Sambisa forest.

Meanwhile, gunmen suspected to be terrorists have killed at least six army personnel attached to the 93 Battalion, Takum, Taraba State in an ambush.

According to Saharareporters, the men of the Nigerian Army were killed in Tati village around 6:30am on Tuesday.

It was gathered that the gunmen ambushed the troops, killing six soldiers, while a lieutenant colonel identified as ES Okore (N/11717) was “missing in action” amid fears that he had been abducted.

The military officers killed include Dauda Tata (7NA/44/4046), Yusuf Salihu (95NA/40/5031), Ndubuise Okonkwo (96NA/42/6911), Abdullahi Ibrahim (13NA/70/7901), Emmanuel Jerry (14NA/72/14051) and Sani Isa (14NA/72/15462).
